Visit to the Art Mûr art gallery

Organised by Le Cercle des printemps du MAC

The visit to the Art Mûr art gallery took place on Marc 21, 2017 in company of artist Jean-Robert Drouillard.

Established in 1996, Art Mûr has evolved into one of the largest private contemporary art galleries in Canada. The gallery represents both emerging and established artists with practices ranging from painting and sculpture to new media and performance art. Well-known for its dynamic programming, which includes both solo and thematic group exhibitions, Art Mûr plays an important role in the diffusion of contemporary art in Montreal.  It is a cultural hot spot where collectors, curators, artists and clients coalesce.

Art Mûr represents over thirty artists collected by numerous museums throughout North America and who have participated in important events including the Venice Biennale, the Prague Biennial and the Sharjah Biennial. Their artists have also won prestigious prizes, such as the General Governor’s award, the Borduas Prize and many others. Art Mûr is proud to call itself the only contemporary commercial art gallery in Quebec that represents as many Quebec artists as artists from the rest of Canada, and as many female as male artists. Art Mûr also initiates regular collaborations with young independent curator and with curators and directors of various Canadian museums.
